About the property

2bed, 2bath condo @ Northstar!!

Cozy 2 bed, 2 bath cozy condo in an awesome location at Northstar! What a great snow year it is turning out to be !! Please note that I do everything possible to keep my rates as reasonable as they are: arrival is after 3PM and depature is by 10AM. A late checkout is avaialble, but does come with an additional charge and needs to be determined at the time of booking).

Our condo is in the trees - just step outside to hike or bike the mountain, or take a quick walk to the village and the recreation center. A quick drive to the quaint mountain town of Truckee and 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe.

The ski trails condos all have slight differences in terms of location, and interiors now as many owners have remodeled these "Old Northstar" condos over the years. Ours is on Coyote Fork, and set back a bit from the village. Steps from the slopes and surrounded by trees!

The condo has two bedrooms. The upstairs Bedroom (King) and Mainfloor bedroom (Queen). Currently one twin aero bed mattress (plug in blow up/down - easy to do and comfortable enough for the kiddos). The couch does not pull out. You are welcome to squeeze in more than 4 if you would like, up to 6.

We have owned this condo for 14+ years (purchased when our daughter was less than one year old - in January of 2002.) She is now 15. Where does the time go? We remodeled the condo right after we purchased it - and we love the knotty pine feel throughout that really lets you know you are in the mountains, as well as the views out the windows of the trees and surrounding mountains

PLEASE READ - A bit about my rates:

(1)Arrival is after 3PM and departure is by 10AM. Please note these times are what enable me to keep my rates reasonable.

(2) If you would ike a late check out, we need to plan this up front at the time of booking, and if it is possible a late checkout is from $75-$100 depending on the time, and the season ($100 in ski season)

(2) Cleaning fee: The condo will be clean, the linens and towels upon your arrival.

(3) Taxes: I pay occupancy taxes of 10 percent to the county. These are listed separately in the quote (can't avoid the tax man!)

(4) Property Damage: I do not require property damage deposits for retrurning guests. For new guests I require either (1) a fullly refundable security deposit or (2) a non refundable $35 accidential damange amount which protects you against accidential damage up to $400. Please indicate which one you would prefer.

(5) VRBO Service fee: This fee is a processing fee which is charged directly by VRBO to the travelor. It does not go to me.

PLEASE NOTE: I keep the calendar current but please understand that I often have multiple inquiries which often overlap the same equested dates! Please understand that your dates are booked until I receive your first payment. Thanks!!

About Cathy Lang

We live in the Bay Area and bought this condo shortly after our daughter was born as we wanted to keep skiing as a family, and it has been perfect for that. Over the years, we have grown to love Tahoe just as much in the summer months.

Why Cathy Lang chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We love skiing, Northstar is an excellent family ski resort. This condo is in a perfect location - with a bit of snow you can easily walk down the parking lot to get on the green slopes, or now there is a ski back (blue) that comes right by our building.

What makes this condo unique

We picked this condo from a few that were on the market due to the excellent view of the mountain range and trees. We remodeled this condo into a two bed, two bath condo - shortly after we purchased it We love the knotty pine feel throughout, and we absolutely love the location. Please absolutely feel free to contact me with any questions about Northstar you may have. it is a great place for a family vacation, winter or summer- there is so much to do at Northstar and the surrounding Lake Tahoe area.

Clean, comfortable and convenient condo

  • 5 of 5

Nice condo, well located, everything you need for a comfortable stay. There were 3 of us, and we had plenty of room to stretch out. Our only complaint was that the hot water was very short lasting.

Great condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just perfect for our family. Comfy beds, well stocked kitchen, nice cozy couches in front of the fireplace. Great location with quick walk (or shuttle) down to the village. Also very easy to ski in/ski out onto Condo Run from the far end of the parking lot. The boys enjoyed playing Wii before and after skiing. Having access to the property owners Rec Center was a nice bonus - the family hot tub at the Rec Center was ENORMOUS and great fun for the kids. Cathy was very responsive in advance of our trip and provided a wealth of helpful information. Thanks so much - we will be back next time we visit Tahoe!

Fantastic Location and Family/Budget Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Cathy's place was perfect for us over Xmas and NYE holidays. Skiing in and out of the place even early season with minimal coverage was very easy. The convenience of skiing in and out is perfect for lunches off the mountain (that means no $17 hamburgers required). It was also a very easy 3-5 minute walk to the village from her place. One cool thing that isn't really advertised is that you can dial a shuttle to pick you up basically at your doorstep to take you anywhere in Northstar.

Cathy is also as responsive and nice of a VRBO owners as I have ever dealt with. She responds to texts and/or emails within an hour. She was extremely easy to work with, and I imagine that if anything went wrong during your stay (which it didn't during ours) it would be fixed in a moments notice.

In regards to the place, it was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen came with everything needed to cook with including pots, pans, utensils, seasonings, etc. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, and having access to wifi, cable, a Wii, Dvd's and on demand cable made for nights in the cabin pretty enjoyable with friends and family.

Looking at pricing around Northstar you really can't beat this place. It's about a third of the cost of staying in the village with the same access to the slopes in terms of steps needed to get on the mountain as any other spot in Northstar. I would highly recommend staying here and will be doing my best to stay here again next season.

Thanks Cathy!
